I don’t know if that European heat wave is affecting parts of Scandinavia, but it sounds like the 4th in line to the Norwegian throne is going a little bit….crazy.

Media Reports:

Princess Martha Louise of Norway has claimed that she is a clairvoyant, saying that she realised as a child that she could read people’s inner feelings, and that she owes her ability to make contact with angels to her experiences with horses.

“It was while I was taking care of the horses that I got in contact with the angels,” she says.
“I have lately understood the value of this important gift and I wish to share it with other people, maybe with you.”

The 35-year-old Princess – the daughter of King Harald and Queen Sonja, is a trained physical therapist – and made the claims on a web site for her alternative education centre.

The Norwegian Royal Palace confirmed that the Web site accurately reflected the Princess’s views, but declined further comment.

Sounds like somebody has been spending way too much time in the Royal Palace.

  6th sense or publicity stunt?

Consumerism gone crazy?

Haven’t yet finished the shopping you wanted at Ikea, and the store looks like it’s about to close. Oh no! Guess you better head for the exits…Or do you?

No need to worry folks, you can stay in the store overnight, not a problem.

The Guardian reports:

“It will be like an alternative hostel,” said Frode Ullebust, a company spokesman. “There will be the regular dormitory with lots of beds stacked up together. We will also have a bridal suite, with a round bed and a hanging chandelier, and the luxury suite, where customers can enjoy breakfast in bed.”.

Every night the 30 customers permitted to sleep over will be able to stock up on meatballs, Norwegian salmon and cranberry mousse as Ikea is offering free dinner and breakfast. “The shop opens at 10am so if they are lazy, people might get woken up by shoppers testing out their mattresses,” Ullebust said.

Customers will also be able to take their bedsheets home. “It’s a nice souvenir,” he added. “We will also give them bathrobes with the Ikea Hostel logo on, and some slippers, so they won’t get cold at night.”

Now that’s just plain awesome. How much for the luxury suite I should wonder? Sounds like one hell of an idea for a honeymoon.

The crazy new idea will be tested in two Oslo, Norway warehouses. No word yet on the concept catching on in other parts of the world.

Sure hope it does!

It all begs the question, where did this sleep over Ikea idea come from?

Well, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion it must have been from this recent Aussie comedy sketch…

 Barbow the goose

A goose has smashed the record fastest time for a North Sea crossing from Scotland to Norway. Barbow the Barnacle Goose made the trip in 5 hours maintaining a speed of about 75 miles per hour.

The previous quickest crossing was by fellow barnacle goose Godzilla who made the journey in about eight hours.

Barbow is part of a project to tag and track the travels of 10 migrating geese.
